I decided to use some Cloud 9 "It's a Plus" Koi canvas for this bag as the heavier weight of the canvas is just perfect for bags.
And I also happened to have some teal bias binding leftover from another project which was just the right colour for the piping.
I adapted the bag closure to use a magnetic snap rather than the leather flap from the original pattern.And I also added in a zippered welt pocket to the lining for a secure place to keep my phone and purse, along with a little tab to attach my keys onto so I don't lose them! .
The hardware for the strap was repurposed from an old camera strap, although you can always just tie the straps onto the side tabs like in some of Annas examples of the bag.
As with all of Anna's designs, this pattern was easy to follow with very clear instructions so if you haven't tried to make a bag before, I can recommend trying either this one or her other free Trail Tote pattern which I have made here and here.
